    Lotus in the Peak - kids?

    Ours will be 8 and 10 and we've only missed one LitP my Dad's'80th). They love the day. Oliver did the run with me last year (thought we were going 'racing') and enjoyed it loads. We're local so never thought of camping, but might do this year just for the fun of it. Jessica's turn for the run.

    Any one with a K running a silenced decat?

    My old DVA 200 K-series ran the EP 5" silenced decat and it was fine.

    Do you have a date in mind ? It always falls close to my Dad's birthday and this year will be his first after Mum passed away. Happy to lead a fast-ish Ashbourne group as long as I can get a navigator (can't commit to doing enough drives to do it from memory).

    Seasons Greeting

    Happy Christmas everyone. We have my Dad with us this year - first Christmas since Mum died back in September, so going to have some tough moments, but the kids will keep us busy ! See you some more trackdays next year. Chris, Sonya and the kids 🍷

    MFRU ?

    Unfortunately not. It was fine last time and I haven't been in the front compartment for anything in months. Can only assume it was a mistake at Guglielmi's when they had it for some work.

    MFRU ?

    It's sorted now. The charger was wrongly connected ! No idea how as it was ok last time it was on the charger.

    MFRU ?

    Went to the car today and unimmobised it (99-plate S1 with Bernard Scouse Audi conversion running Emerald K3 ECU). Dashboard, etc did their normal things. Turned the ignition on and the fuel pump primed as expected (fast then slow, then stopped once pressurised). Turned to crank but nothing. No relay click, no chattering, nothing. Car was fine when last driven and has been on the Optimate 4 since then (~3weeks). All Optimate and dashboard LEDs are normal. Headlights are bright. Looking at late S1 wiring diagrams (section MN1 Sheet 1 etc), it seems that the immobiliser, the alarm or MFRU are probably the only possible causes. There's no fuse for the starter motor itself. It can't be the fuses for either the ignition or MRFU, nor the inertia switch, as any of these would stop the fuel pump priming. Anyone got a spare MRFU I could borrow to check ? Would prefer to eliminate that before looking at the immobiliser, unless anyone thinks the immobiliser is more likely ?

    LoT Black Friday prices

    Just booked Donny, Tuesday 4th June. Evening session for £100. Anyone else ?

    Thanks to Steve Guglielmi

    As usual, top service from Steve and his team. Left the car with him for a couple of weeks for MoT prep, service, cambelt change, etc. Car came back with other work done that was also needed, and he didn't even charge for some of the time spent investigating things that took longer than he expected. Also gave a thorough list of other work that needs thinking about slow-time. Cheers Steve !

    Donington Park, Monday 29/10 - Booked

    I booked with LoT but wouldn't be surprised if it's a shared one (MX5 ?)

    Donington Museum Closing

    Hmm, must try to visit again before then. Kids liked it before but they're older now and will appreciate it more. Hope they can find someone to run it (assuming they're trying), and the massive collection doesn't just get broken up. MLOC tribute run, as it's our best local track venue ? Curry afterwards ?
  13. I see some names I recognise. Still ~dozen spaces left.

    Another New Lotus

    Always loved the 160, and a great colour too (I would say that, though).

    Replacing light switch

    It's a standard Peugeot part if you need to replace it. Mine got sticky once before. A lot of jabbing finally released it.
